Scripting Unattended Install In A Batch-file

Nov 28, 2006


I'm trying to do the following in a batch-file:

1) Install SQLExpress unattended providing settings in an .ini-file

2) Run an osql-command which creates a database and some tables etc.

My batch-script looks like the following:

REM Install SQLExpress

start /wait .SQLExpresssetup.exe /qb /settings %CD%mysettings.ini

osql -S (local)MyExpress -U sa -P passwd -i .createdb.sql


The problem is that the SQLExpress setup updates the %PATH%, but the change is not visible in my cmd-context . So, the osql-command fails.

It seems like I have to start a new cmd-window from the windows shell to get the updated environment.

Is there any way to make the environment changes visible to my script?

This might be more a sort of general batch-programming topic, but any help is appreciated. :)

SQL 2012 :: Master Data Service Export Data On-demand?

Feb 17, 2014

Background: In my current company the business users maintain a huge quantity of master data using excel. Then a series of SSIS jobs are edited and manually executed.

Goal: the challenge is to replace this process using MDS. One of the requested features is the possibility for the users to edit or insert new master data using the Web UI or the Excel Add-in and when they are done perform a merge of the master data in the target, in this case in the reporting DB.

The perfect solution for me is something like trigger the execution of a SSIS package to export the data from the subscription views to the reporting DB after the business rules are apply to a specific entity.

Scripting The Isql.exe To Export Date And Backup The DB SQL 2000

Aug 22, 2006

We have no certified SQL DBAs. Mainly because 95% of our production data is on Oracle and DB2 databases.

One of our Oracle DBAs is trying to write scripts that can be run by the AS400 robot to export data and backup the databases. I (being the only person with any SQL expierance) have been asked to ensure that the scripts she wrote will not only work but not bring down the server.

Can anyone point me to the correct place (web, book, ect) to find out how this is to be done? In years past my SQL servers have been stand alone dedicated units. With db backups scheduled through the SQL Manager and tape backups handled by the sysadmin.

Please help,

SQL 2012 :: Modify SP In Batch

Jul 7, 2015

I face a task to edit definition for bunch of sp: cleaning <IF EXISTS THEN DROP> and changing CREATE for ALTER.

Do you think there is a good way to do it in batch and take original source from system.tables (even we have this as physical file in VSS)?

Surely enough <IF Exists then drop> is not uniformed, could be variations with syntax and on diff number of lines, IF Exists... vs OBJECT_ID is not null etc...

CREATE__sp_PROCEDUREA vs CREATE_spPROcedure (with diff spacing).

SQL 2012 :: How To Get Previous Statements In A Batch

Feb 25, 2015

I have an interesting problem. A number of spids are being blocked by a single select statement. The select statement is the same as returned from sp_who2, sysprocesses, sp_whoisactive of dbcc inputbuffer. It is not waiting on anything and has status as sleeping.

Clearly it is not 'just' a sleeping select statement as I can see over a thousand locks held by the spid on 2 user databases and tempdb. I'm working on the theory there is a begin transaction with a bunch of statements and no closing commit. But I want to be able to prove that. How can I show what statements were previously executed as part of this transaction?

Additional Info: SQL 2012 Enterprise Edition. This is a test server but is a reproduction of a live issue. At this point the application team cannot isolate the code causing the problem, only the set of processes the code resides in.

I am using Variables to configure a lot in an SSIS Packages.

Over the years you add new variables that are usefull to your default-package.

However to use those in "older" packages you have to open add them manually.

Any way (e.g. skript) to add a set of variables to every SSIS-package in a folder ?

SQL Server 2012 :: How To Batch Delete Large Table

Jun 16, 2015

I have a table with about 466 Million rows. In this table there is a int column called WeeksToRetain as well as a EventDate column containing the date the row was inserted. I am trying to delete all the rows that that should be deleted according to the WeeksToRetain. For example, if the EventDate is 5/07/15 with a 1 in the WeeksToRetain column the row should be removed by 5/14/15. I am not sure what days SQL considers the beginning and end of the week. However the core issue I am having is the sheer mass of deletions I must do and log growth.

So I am trying to do the delete in batches. More specifically I want to load a temporary table with a million rows, then use the temporary table to load a sub temporary table with 100,000 rows and join this temporary table to the table I want to delete from looping through 10 times to get 1 million. The Logging.EvenLog table which is the table I'm trying to purge has a clustered index on EventDate (ASC). I would like to run this in a schedule job with enough time between executions for log backups to run.

DECLARE @i int
DECLARE @RowCount int
DECLARE @NextBatchDate datetime
CREATE TABLE #BatchProcess
EventDate datetime,
ApplicationID int,

[Code] .....

SQL 2012 :: Deleting Large Batches Of Rows - Optimum Batch Size?

Oct 16, 2015

In another forum post, a poster was deleting large numbers of rows from a table in batches of 50,000.

In the bad old days ('80s - '90s), I used to have to delete rows in batches of 500, then 1000, then 5000, due to the size of the transaction rollback segments (yes - Oracle).

I always found that increasing the number of deleted rows in a single statement/transaction improved overall process speed - up to some magic point, at which some overhead in the system began slowing the deletes down, so that deleting a single batch of 10,000 rows took more than twice as much time as deleting two batches of 5,000 rows each.

good rule-of-thumb numbers (or even better, some actual statistics and/or explanations) as to how many records should be deleted in a single transaction/statement for optimum speed? 50,000 - 100,000 - 1,000,000 or unlimited? Are there significant differences between 2008, 2012, 2014?

SQL Batch In Data Flow

May 9, 2008

I am learning SSIS, I am try to figure out how to run a SQL batch that returns a result set and export it to Excel using a Data Flow. I am using a OLE Db Source with a SQL batch shown below and the Destination Query is an Excel file.

How is this done?

So far I have had no luck getting the tasks to run. I need more than just simple queries.

The SQL is below:




DECLARE @TableSchema NVARCHAR(128)

CREATE TABLE #temp ([Name] NVARCHAR(128), [RowCount] INT)

OPEN Tables
FETCH NEXT FROM Tables INTO @TableSchema, @TableName

SET @SqlCmd = 'SELECT ''[' + @TableSchema + '].[' + @TableName + ']'', COUNT(*) FROM [' + @TableSchema + '].[' + @TableName + ']'
INSERT #temp EXEC sp_executesql @SqlCmd
FETCH NEXT FROM Tables INTO @TableSchema, @TableName


CLOSE Tables

Automated Batch Job Over Numerous Data Files, How?

Nov 2, 2006

Hello, Everyone: Greetings!

I am new to Sql Server [Express version] and am not even sure I'm making the right choice. So here I am, seeking advice.

My database needs are nothing sophisticated. They just involve:
(a) create tens of thousands of separate data files each under a unique file name of up to 8 characters, with file names read in from a pre-determined file name list.
(b) store/insert VOLUMINOUS numerical data into each of the data files, with the data indexed by date&time, plus maybe one or two additional character or string fields.
(c) for each data file, retrieve a subset of its data, perform extensive numerical calculations, and then store the results in one or more separate corresponding files, e.g. if a file name in (b) is F12345, (c) creates F12345R1, F12345R2, F12345R3, etc. which stores different sets of calculated results.

Thus, this is purely a console application, doing a batch job, and requiring no graphical user interface. Both automation and speed are important here, due to the large number of data files that must be created and/or updated, and the very extensive numerical calculations on the data.

The goal is to automate the daily or weekly creation of each of the tens of thousands of Sql Server database files, insert fresh data (read in from a fresh ASCII file) into each file, numerically process the data and then store the results in one or more separate, corresponding result data files, with all the steps automated and without need for GUI. Once coding is done, the entire data processing session is expected to run for many hours, or even days, in an automated manner, and without human intervention.

What would be the most efficient way of doing this under Visual Basic Express (which is what I'm learning to use) by directly calling Sql Server Express without having to go through GUI to create database files? What is the proper interface utility or library to use to enable direct database function calls without the need to learn SQL language? Is Visual Basic and/or Sql Server even good choices for what I want to do? I want to be able to call the basic, simple database functions directly and simply from program code in a non-GUI, non-interactive manner for the tens of thousands of separate data files that will be used.

I really miss the good old days when one can do a straightforward batch job via a console application, with simple, direct calls to create new data files, insert and index fresh data, retrieve any subset of data to do extensive calculations, create new files to store the results, etc. all under automated program control and iterating through unlimited number of data files, until the job is finished, all without human intervention during processing.

Or am I missing something because all this can still be done simply and easily under VB and Sql Server? I've several books here about Visual Basic 2005 and Visual Basic 2005 Express, all showing how to create a database via a GUI utility. That's fine if one needs to create just one or two databases, but not hundreds, or even tens of thousands (as in my case) of them on the fly.

So, I am looking for the simplest and most direct database interface that will allow me to do the above under VB program code alone, and easily. For something as simple as I have described above, I don't think I should have to learn the SQL language or manually create each database file.

As you can see, I just want to get some heavy duty numerical processing job done over tens of thousands of data files as simply and efficiently as possible, and with as little fanciful detour as possible. So, ironically, I am trying to use Visual Basic without being cluttered by having to learn its "Visual" aspects, yet GUI is what most VB books devote to or emphasize heavily. Similarly, I would much rather use simple, "lean and mean", direct database function calls than having to learn a new vocabulary of "English-like" SQL language.

Yes, I'm not used to this tedious detour of learning the GUI aspect of VB, or learning the Structured Query Language of Sql Server, just to try to do something simple that I need to do in batch mode via a console application.

Are there any good books or other helpful URLs that will help a guy like me? Am I even using the wrong language and the wrong database to do what I want to do? What are the better alternatives, if any? Any advice, experience and pointers on any of the above issues raised would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Updating Batch Record After Exporting Data

Aug 19, 2006

I created a package in SSIS to export data from mutiple SQL server tables to a single flat file. Once the export is completed i need to update 2 tables ( a batch table and a history table) In the batch table I need to insert a record with batch # (system generated),batch date, status( success/failed), record count( no of records in the flat file), batch filename). In the history table, i need to insert a record for each of the rows in the flat file with the foll info. batch number,datetime,status(success/failed)

My question is how do I get the batch status,record count, batchfilename for batch table update and how do i get to update the history table.

BTW, i am executing this package as a SQL Server Agent job.
I am new to Integration Services and feel lost.
Any help ?

BCP Batch File Produces Sporatic Corrupt Data

Aug 16, 2006

Matt writes "Greetings! Warning, I'm a rookie. I wrote a stored procedure to pull data in order to do a nightly export/import from one system to another. I have a batch file that looks like this:

bcp "exec WinSNAP_retrieveStudents '0607'" queryout c:WinSNAPData06.txt -c -U user -P password

Sometimes, the file works and I get perfectly formed data, with everything just as I've requested (mostly basic demographic information: names, addresses, etc.).

But, other times the output file contains nothing but garbage characters, like this:

剒乏 ठ䅍啎䱅 䴉㐉㐷‰䕓䄠䅐䡃⁅剄

The file size looks right, but it contains nothing but characters like this from beginning to end. I can find no pattern as to why/when good data gets pulled versus the corrupt data. I can run the batch file one minute and get good data, and run it the next minute and it's all corrupt. We have the batch file scheduled late at night when no users are online, and I get the same results -- one day it works, the next it doesn't.

Forgive me if this is a well-documented issue -- my searches so far haven't turned up a thing!

Thanks much for any advice you can provide!!

SQL Server 2012 :: BCP For XML Export Error

Nov 19, 2013

I'm trying to export some tables from SQL Server 2012 into .xml format in a local drive and have run into a problem when reading the file in Excel for example.

The code I'm currently using is:

DECLARE @FileName varchar(50),
@bcpCommand varchar(8000)

SET @FileName = 'D:SQLextractsdbo.vwPOLICIES_Test'+'.xml'
SET @bcpCommand = 'bcp "SELECT pvTransactionID, pvPolicyID, pvParentPolicyID, pvProductTypeName, pvClientID,
[Code] ...

I've gone through each of the fields exported and the column pvInsuredName is what's causing the error. If I include column pvInsuredName in the script I end up with the Excel error message 'invalid file reference. the path to the file is invalid, or one or more of the referenced schemas could not be found' .

I'm guessing there's an issue with some of the characters contained within the column pvInsuredName causing the error.
